You gotta have guts

While I felt like I was getting close to glue-up of the tool chest carcass, I almost forgot about all the guts of the project.  That's right, the web frames for the drawers.  While the double drawer blades creates a bit more work, the process is actually not that different from a regular chest.  The biggest challenge for me was just remembering that the web frames for each drawer have to be different sizes, since the drawers get gradually smaller from bottom to top.

Rob,

You are making great progress on this build. I like the detailed explanations you provide on your joinery designs and the reasoning that brought you to the decisions you made. As always the production quality matches your woodworking skills. I can't wait to see how you handle the glue up.. That could be a real fun video to watch...

Rob, I prefer to download the HD version of your videos. The link wasn't there this time, are you able to provide one? Thanks, and great project. I'm enjoying watching the build.
